Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan 2006–2028

The Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan 2006 - 2028 evolved from responses to the Draft Core Strategy, new evidence identified and changes in Government policy. This followed earlier consultation on an Issues and Options document and early "front loaded" engagement with town and parish councils and key stakeholders to produce the Draft Core Strategy.

The Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan

Public Consultation on the Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan 2006 - 2028 took place from 28th June 2012 to 10th August 2012 with all previous representees and statutory consultees informed by letter of the consultation. A leaflet promoting the consultation was published and distributed to all South Somerset homes and a press notice and press release published prior to the start date.

The document itself together with representations made can be viewed via the following link Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan 2006 - 2028 and is also available to view at Council offices and Libraries. It can be purchased for £25 (plus postage if needed). Published alongside the current version of the Plan were a number of Reports that were required to be produced.

Policies currently saved from the former South Somerset Local Plan 1991 - 2011 are reviewed as part of the Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan (appendix 2).

Evidence Base underlying the Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan 2006-2028 is available and this includes the Transport modelling reports undertaken through the Somerset County Council on the matter of the appropriate location for an urban extension to Yeovil. The outcome of initial consultation on the First Transport Report is also available
